"It seems strange to say, but what can help modern man find the answers to his own mystery and the mystery of him in whose image he is created, is silence, solitude -- in a word, the desert. Modern man needs these things more than the hermits of old." Catherine Doherty

April Fools Day!

This week at this old Monastic Center. Just when you thought it was safe to put the plow away, and break out the mud boots old man winter sends more SNOW! Well it is April 1st after all, in Vermont! I guess that makes me the fool! Will the truck make it through the mudsnow? Will spring ever arrive? Will we really care, or should we just get some buckets and tap some trees! Stay tuned to This Old Monastic center to find out!

But for right now; it’s back to the plow truck and off to the driveway. By noon the snow was really coming down and driveway turned into deep mudsnow!

Happy April Fool!
